Technology in Volleyball
Technology certainly is not the answer in volleyball, but Coach Rey believes in the competitive advantage it provides for a team. By no means does he claim to be a technological guru, maybe a little bit of nerd, but it is all self-taught. This website Coach Rey created using WordPress HTML and CSS with Dreamweaver and Fireworks software, a bit of cutting and pasting, but it certainly is not W3C compliant
Yes, these videos are a bit nerdy
Besides website creation, Coach Rey enjoys intermixing technology and volleyball. At the University of Minnesota, Coach Rey utilized Data Volley and Data Video softwares for individual and team analysis, scouting, and statistical purposes. At Georgia Southern University he created a Google Group to organize the GSU Invitational Tournament. This is a great and simple tool that teams can take advantage of to better communicate. Coach Rey also created Georgia Southern University’s first HTML recruiting email that allowed prospective players to gain a better understanding of the Georgia Southern program. In addition, Coach Rey also used Google Video to post matches on the Internet for video exchange with other teams. This led to a proposal to the Southern Conference that hopes to utilize this technology for all teams.
